Re: Murray winning 1st slam vs Djokovic winning Roland Garros

don't think Djokovic will win Roland Garros and Murray, especially after winning the Olympics, seems fairly likely of winning a slam in not too long.

Murray's first

<3 Roger Federer <3 David Ferrer <3 Juan Martin Del Potro <3 Ernest Gulbis <3

------------------------ <3 Richard Gasquet <3

fluke- they played in unusually wet conditions... the odds that the conditions are similar and aid DJokovic that much in their next potential Roland Garros matches are very little

Re: Murray winning 1st slam vs Djokovic winning Roland Garros

I am staying with my original prediction and picking Murray to win AO '13. I'm just not ready to pick him as a fav to win this USO. Until proven otherwise Nole & Fed are still the 2 best HC players currently. But if Andy keeps improving his game & mental strength as he has been, I can definitely see him breaking through at Oz.

Re: Murray winning 1st slam vs Djokovic winning Roland Garros

I think Rafa has his seven over Borg and any others will be gravy. However, I think Novak has a real chance RG 2013 or more probable 2014. I don't think Roger can win it anymore and Murray has not ever won a title on clay.

I'm not a big fan of these prediction threads at all, but I do understand you guys need to chit chat about something. what the heck do we know? I'd say both scenarios are possible (Gosh, I'm so smart, lol).

Re: Murray winning 1st slam vs Djokovic winning Roland Garros

I definitely pick Murray

28/05/2016 - The day which proved that Tennis is RIGGED


The game is completely rigged against Federer. Nadal was supposed to be the trojan horse to overtake Federer, but the elites of tennis changed their mind in early 2012 to Djokovic. If you understand that, then you will understand why modern tennis is completely fixed for Djokovic to win.

If you want to read my entire theory, check here as I'm not allowed to post the truth on MTF: https://twitter.com/SunSeekerSlade

Re: Murray winning 1st slam vs Djokovic winning Roland Garros

Good thread. I'm going with Murray first. He's floating around the SF-F territory so he should break through soon. Especially considering his improvements. He pushed Djokovic to 5 sets, defeated Federer for the first time in a 5 setter, etc. It is bound to happen soon.

Why? What's changed? He's always done well against the Top 3 in non-Slam finals.

Re: Murray winning 1st slam vs Djokovic winning Roland Garros

Murray will lose very early at USO this year. Book it. He always fails to perform after winning a big tournament. He might go far at AO.

Re: Murray winning 1st slam vs Djokovic winning Roland Garros

I dont see Nadal giving anyone a chance in the next 2 years. Djokovic winning Roland Garros is just as unlikely as Federer or Murray winning it. Murray wont win a slam with his pusher-like, boring game. Unless he changes his boring gamestyle- not much will change. If I had to choose between the 2, I would pick Murray winning his first slam.

KARLOVIC
